Does anyone know of any tutorials for painting WWI or WWII artillery? I have a nice 75mm artillery piece I've sprayed with Testor's Olive Drab. I still need to paint the pneumatic tires. However, it looks very uniform, and it seems like there should be weathering, or oil dribbles, or something to break up all that OD, especially on the gun shield.

Thanks very much!

You could dirty it up? I try not to make my guns and tanks look like they just went thru a car wash in their cleanliness.

Artillery can get a bit grubby just like a tank:

Wash and a dry brush usually sorts most things out, just like vehicles. Get a bit of mud and dust on those wheels.
